No time for jogging or an intensive workout at the fitness centre? The following targeted full-body exercises will do wonders for your fitness in only a few minutes.

Squats: To strengthen the upper thigh muscles.

  1. Stand with your feet apart and knees slightly bent.
  2. Extend the buttocks towards the back and slowly lower yourself into a squatting position, as if you were sitting on a chair.
  3. Shift the pressure onto the heels, and then assume the starting position again.

Crunches: To strengthen the muscles in your trunk.

  1. Lie on your back.
  2. Lift your legs until your thighs point towards the ceiling, with knees at a 90-degree angle and the lower legs parallel to the floor.
